I was looking into switching this package from gnome-doc-utils (which
was reported to me as being deprecated, and a blocker in the
rebootstrap effort) to a pure gettext solution.

Unfortunately upstream gettext XML support does not seem mature
enough, so this is currently not possible. :( I guess another option
might be to switch to use po4a, but I've taken already too much time
with this.

I'm attaching what I've got, which could be applied once the blocking
bugs have been fixed.
